Solidarity Alert: Join the HPAE Day of Action on 4/4 in Newark

Solidarity Alert: An Injury to One is an Injury to All!

Join the upcoming HPAE Day of Action and Stand in Solidarity with our fellow members at Rutgers University on Tuesday, April 4, at 12pm in Newark or virtually from anywhere.

HPAE Members at University Hospital are asked to do all you can to show up on break time or time off in support of HPAE 5089 and HPAE 5094 membership at Rutgers University who have been in difficult negotiations for almost a year to win strong union contracts. Standing in solidarity with our union family will lend power to the fight because when we win as a Union, we all share in the victory.

HPAE Members to Rutgers: Stop Union Busting and Settle Our Contracts Now!

After almost a year of negotiations with Rutgers, our members are calling for action. Rutgers University’s delay at our bargaining tables make it clear that we are no beloved community. The HPAE United Bargaining Team is calling for a Day of Action on Tuesday, April 4th to support winning a strong contract for all HPAE members at Rutgers. Members can support the Day of Action in person or virtually on break time, or time off safely.

Attend the Day of Action in Person:
